According to all reports, the high divorce rate continues unabated in Wisconsin and across the country. Many complex issues are at stake when a couple decides to end a marriage. Child custody, alimony or spousal support and, if the couple is a high-profile one, property division may all be areas of contention. In a high-asset divorce, it is not uncommon for spouses try to hide assets in order to avoid paying the right amount of alimony.
In a recent divorce case with an astoundingly high asset division, a former spouse of a billionaire oil tycoon alleged that she was awarded an inadequate portion of the available marital assets. The ex-wife was awarded $1 billion by a court, but she now contends that this award is grossly undervalued and much less than the portion of marital property to which she believes she is entitled.
